Reader: Where's the Corruption Investigation in Cleveland?

Posted By on Thu, Dec 20, 2007 at 2:03 PM

A letter to Greg White, U.S. attorney in Cleveland... As the U.S. attorney in Cleveland, you and your Cleveland FBI office are supposed to investigate corruption in Greater Cleveland. You must immediately investigate the Kennedy family and their medical mart compnay, as it is an outgrowth of the Merchandise Mart company that patriarch Joe Kenendy started decades ago... It is an outrage that you are prosecuting the Kennedys for this, and Cuyahoga Couny Commissioners Jimmy Dimora and Tim Hagan (he is very close to the Kennedy family). Hagan and Dimora rasied the county sales tax just as a favor to the Kennedys to help pay for this, and as a favor for Sam Miller, who owns Forest City Enterprises and Tower City and stands to gain by having this convention center and/or medical mart built on land he owns behind Tower City. Sam Miller pays off many powerful politicians in the Cleveland area. Too bad you allow these bribes to continue, year after year. But since you work for Bush and Cheney, no wonder. They are as corrupt as a poltitician can get, sold out to their big business funders. To keep your job you have to ignore it. Don't expect to read about this in Cool Cleveland, because its director, Thomas Mulready (the sinister guy in the black hat who always wanted to be an actor), is on the board of the Cleveland Vistors and Convention Bureau, which is trying to get this Medical Mart and Convention Center. So Mulready is on the side of big business. No wonder the Cleveland Foundation funds him big time. Bob Brown
